Computer/EE Technology Specialist

“Limitations can be overcome. I can achieve goals that I did not expect myself to reach. As long as I do not give up, "everything is possible".”

What were the initial difficulties of adjusting to life in Japan?

Actually, I had a lot of fun from the difficulties due to language barrier. When I presented a picture to the waiter to order food in a restaurant, the waiter taught me Japanese for my order. Assistance is everywhere as long as I reach out.

How was Japan in reality to what you had imagined before you arrived?

Almost the same as I pictured from Japanese dramas.

How would you describe your co-workers?

They respect every single work task. They are smart to handle difficult cases and hardworking to finish everything on time. I've obtained a lot of guidance and help from senior members.

Do you feel like you're having an impact directly on the clients that you work for?

It is always a great pleasure to receive a letter saying that the clients fully agree with my analysis and proposed strategy. At that moment, I feel that I am offering something valuable.

What are the challenging or difficult aspects of your work?

Analysis, judgment, and communication. My work is about finding possible strategies (analysis) and then choosing the best one (judgment) to be presented to the client (communication).

When I am not at work, I'm...

exploring Japan. During weekends, I can just drop by Kyoto, Kobe or Nara. During a long holiday, e.g., the golden week in May, I would like to plan a long trip to another area of Japan.

What work skills and habits have you learned or improved?

Throughout the time at SY, I have learned how to manage my work time more efficiently to meet every deadline and how to handle multiple tasks at the same time.

What is the most important thing that working at the Firm has taught you about yourself?

Limitations can be overcome. I can achieve goals that I did not expect myself to reach. As long as I do not give up, "everything is possible".

What advice would you give to entry level recruits?

Being prepared, physically and mentally, to face the challenges and learn some real skills. During the first several months, you may feel whatever you do can be wrong, but after that period, everything will become better.
